The combination of strong northerly winds and New Moon high tides has not been kind to the beaches, businesses or others along the Hervey Bay foreshore over the last few days.
While some of the spots have seen beach erosion become even worse other spots such as the Pialba area have seen even more sand dumped by the incoming tides.
Late last week the Council had an excavator working at the mouth of Tooan Tooan Creek clearing sand to allow the creek to be flushed at high tide but most of the sand is now back and down at Shelley Beach the tide and winds brought in something quite different.
This catamaran had been anchored off the beach for some weeks but the combination of tide and strong wind was too much for the anchor and when the sun came up on Monday morning there was the vessel was high and dry on the rocks.
While the vessel had obviously sustained some damage it had been removed by Monday afternoon.
